The Mission of The Greek School of St. George is to teach the Greek language and culture, tradition, history and geography of Greece, mythology, observe religious and Greek national holidays, and participation in various activities of the Parish of St. George.

The Greek School of St. George has established a carefully planned Greek language program that addresses the needs of all students – those who have a background in the Greek language and those who do not.  For that reason, the Greek School of St. George provides different curriculum on Fridays and Saturdays.  The Friday School provides an excellent curriculum for students who have little or no exposure to the Greek language outside of school.  The Saturday School provides an additional hour of instruction as well as more rigorous homework.  Please sign up for the class that matches your child’s needs, if you have any questions please ask director Eirini Iatrou( Eirini.iatrou@gmail.com or 240-374-2835).

St. George Greek school is a level-based program which allows students to be placed in classes with peers who have similar capabilities in the Greek language and grow within the language at their pace. The level classes give a child the opportunity to repeat a class or skip a class to be in the classroom that best meets their needs, not because it aligns with their grade level in traditional school.
